Wee Blessing Provides Hassle Free Shopping #Review

No Crowds, Decisions, Overspending with Wee Blessing 

“Can we please leave, Mom?”. “Do we have to go shopping?”. “Are we almost done?”. Unless we are in the toy section, my son strongly dislikes shopping. Those are the questions and comments I hear literally every single time we are in a store.  As a matter of fact, the last time I took him shopping, he did not want to try anything on or give any input; hence, we bought nothing.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a young girl 6 years or older, Music Box Attic has an overflowing selection of musical gifts to choose from.  I picked out this Silver and Pink Ballerina Music Box with Fairy Inlay for my 11 year old daughter.  I know she will absolutely love it.  

The box is deep enough to fill with many precious treasures including any type of jewelry or cards.  It opens up with an adorable spinning Ballerina dancing to the tune of Swan Lake.  Once the loot is added, the Ballerina musical box closes and is easily transported with a pink beaded handle.
